    1 1/2   lb           Cream cheese
    1 1/4   c            Granulated sugar
    1 1/2   ts           Grated orange or lemon rind
    3                    Eggs
      1/2   c            Cream plus 3 Tb
      1/2   ts           Vanilla
   12                    Phyllo sheets
                         Melted butter
 
   1. While chocolate melts in double boiler, use a mixer on low speed and
   blend cheese, sugar and orange or lemon rind until smooth. (Do not use
   low-fat cheese in this recipe) Beat in eggs one at a time, followed by
   cream and vanilla.
   2. Add a little of the cheese mixture to the warmed chocolate, then stir
   this mixture into remaining cheese mixture.
   3. Spoon mixture into a buttered 9-inch layer cake pan, lined with
   parchment paper. Set in a pan, and pour in hot water until it reaches
   halfway up the pan.  Bake ina 350 F. oven, adding more water if needed,
   until set and lightly browned on top, about 1 hour.
   4. Remove from oven, let cool, and refrigerate for at least 4 hours.
   5. To serve, lightly brush each 8 - 12- inch square of phyllo pastry with
   melted butter. Gently remove each slice of cheesecake from pan. Wrap a
   sheet of prepared phyllo pastry around each piece, folding until cake is
   covered with three layers. Trim excess pastry.
   6. Brush each dessert with additional melted butter. Place on a baking
   sheet and bake in a 350 R. oven for 10 minutes, or until phyllo begins to
   brown.
      Transfer to dessert plates and decorate with fruit purees.
